The Varavon Birdycam 2 is a motorized stabilization system that balances out your camera as you follow moving subjects. It lets you get smoother, more fluid shots whether you're actively following the subject or the subject is simply passing by you.
The steering handle moves along three axes (up/down, left/right, and sideways), and your camera hangs suspended on a gimbal in the center and smoothly follows your movements. Even without the motors running, the gimbal balances out relatively smoothly, but with the motors on, a resistance is applied that ensures substantial fluidity. Additionally, there's also a thumb-control joystick on the steering handle that lets you pan and tilt the gimbal without moving the handle itself.
The camera platform is adjustable to support various mid-size cameras, including DSLRs, the Blackmagic Cinema and Production Cameras, Sony a7S, and Panasonic GH4. The maximum weight capacity is 5.5 lb. The motors are battery powered by up to two Varavon batteries, and one battery is included. A stand is also included for setting the Birdycam down. All the components come to you in a compartmentalized case and requiring hardly any assembly.
